Smith: Remember that massive cyber breach targeting the United States government that we reported on it? We gave you the information given to us. But now we know it was much bigger than we knew. According to the Office of Personnel Management hackers stole fingerprint records of more than 5.5 million federal workers as part of that attack. Earlier the feds said the hackers had stolen only one million sets of prints as if that wasn’t bad enough. Analysts point out this is important and here's the reason. You can change your passwords anytime you want, you can change your social security number if you want. You can go through the process and get a new social security number. Fingerprints you can’t change. In all the feds say the breach affects more than 21 million current and former government workers. Our chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge is in Washington. There was a hearing on capitol hill on this, right? Harris: That’s right. We're just into the question and answer session with the head of the NSA before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Herridge: One of the central issues this afternoon has been encryption. Not only by the terrorist browns but the lack of encryption at OPM that allowed the hackers in, and the nation's spy chief says he doesn't have a handle how much data was taken and what was taken, and Admiral Rogers told the committee if China continues its current strategy where they insist they have access to the computers of businesses, whether they're government or whether they're private sector, Rogers said he cannot envision a long-term relationship with China on that basis. Smith: anything from capitol hill on this? Herridge: the chairman of the house homeland security committee who gets regular briefings said the number of affected Americans right now the estimated 21.5 million will go higher because the damage assessments have not concluded.
